Posted 2 quarters ago
Needs to hire 4 Freelancers

We create free, advanced educational content for venture-backed technology startups in the public cloud and IT infrastructure space. The readers of our content include administrators, engineers, and technical managers learning to master key industry technologies.

To produce content superior to the usual online material, we rely on subject matter experts like you who are willing to share their knowledge with less experienced peers to lend a genuine and practical voice to our educational articles.

Our primary interest is your knowledge, ideas, technical expertise, and your ability to communicate them to readers in the way a mentor might train a new team member. We work with professional editors and graphic designers, so we don’t need perfect English or drawing skills, but we require deep subject matter expertise and the ability to articulate your ideas clearly in grammatically correct sentences.

The guide below is an example of the type of content we create:

In this job posting, we are looking for an expert on hosting applications in Heroku and AWS to write an article of 1,500-2,000 words on topics related to comparing AWS and Heroku and migrating from Heroku to AWS. Examples of specific topics in the series we are producing include the following:

- Heroku vs. AWS: The pros, cons, and use cases
- Heroku alternatives (with emphasis on entry-level AWS services)
- AWS migration tools list
- AWS migration acceleration

We require candidates to have hands-on experience with Heroku and AWS services, including with technologies such as Docker, VPN, caching, DNS, etc (the infrastructure needed to host an application in AWS).

This posting is for a single article. However, if this engagement is successful, we would prefer to collaborate with you on additional articles in the coming months at the rate of one or two articles per month.

Note that all of our educational articles are published anonymously on the websites of our clients and are not attributed to any authors.
We require all writing to be original and done by the author, WITHOUT help from generative AI tools such as ChatGPT.
You will be asked to answer the following questions when submitting a proposal:

Please explain in a couple of sentences the extent of your hands-on experience working on Heroku and AWS.

Please provide a couple of your writing samples (such as published blogs or content written for internal purposes).
